Migraines And Headaches With Deitch Family Chiropractic & Wellness Center At Princeton Junction, NJ

It's rare for an adult to never have had a headache and is a condition that even children are bothered by. In some cases, the pain can be completely debilitating. However, at Deitch Family Chiropractic & Wellness Center in Princeton Junction, NJ, we may be able to relieve pain or at least reduce the severity and frequency of your headaches or migraines.

Do I Have Migraines?

A simple headache is often caused by tension, sinus pressure, allergies or a misalignment of the neck. A migraine is actually a neurovascular condition that affects the blood vessels and nerves in the brain. Migraines tend to be one-sided, usually located over or behind one eye. They may cause severe light sensitivity, throbbing pain, nausea, vomiting, and visual changes. People with migraines may even develop slurred speech, temporary paralysis or mental confusion because of the neurological component.

What Causes Headaches?

Two of the most common reasons for headaches are a misalignment of the neck and upper back, and muscle tension, which can result from these alignment problems or from chronic stress. People who spend long hours in front of a computer or at a desk often have these kinds of headaches. Whiplash, which often occurs in an auto accident, is another source of neck problems and headaches. If the lower jaw – the temporomandibular joint – is out of alignment, headaches and jaw pain may result. Your posture can affect the neck muscles, especially if you carry the head thrust forward. An adult's head weighs about 11 pounds – that's a lot of strain on the neck.

Migraines Are Different

No one knows exactly why migraines happen, but scientists have teased out some interesting information and connections. Migraines definitely seem to have a genetic component and often run in families. Women are more susceptible than men. Migraines often begin during puberty, suggesting a hormonal influence. Migraines can be triggered by changes in the barometric pressure. In many people, exposure to bright sunlight, alcohol and food sensitivities will trigger migraines or make them worse.

Princeton Junction Headache Treatment

The first step in treating headaches is a thorough physical assessment and health history. Headache treatment often includes chiropractic adjustment, even for migraines. This is because muscle tension is common in all headaches, and sometimes people have both the kind of a headache that results from a spinal alignment problem and migraines as well. Migraines often respond to dietary changes and stress management. Treatment must always be suited to the individual.
